Decisions and guidelines

In the third semester of the Master's Programme in Business and Management and the Master's Programme in Accounting, Auditing and Analysis, students get the chance to acquire working life experience, as an integrated part of their program. The internship course gives an opportunity to experiencing practical work in a public or private organisation as well as applying and reflecting upon the gained theoretical knowledge.

Learning outcomes

The aim of the internship is that the student:

  • uses acquired theoretical skills and knowledge in practice as well as abstract theoretical knowledge from practical work
  • works independently as well as in teams with others
  • develops an understanding for the role of the education in professional life
  • gets the opportunity to build a professional network
  • gets input and inspiration for the Master's thesis


At the end of the course, the student:

  • has developed skills to understands how theoretical knowledge can be used in practice
  • has developed skills for working independently outside of the university context
  • has developed skills for working in teams with professionals
  • is better prepared for her/his professional career


The student's activities at the internship organisation are to be agreed upon in cooperation between the Department of Business Studies, the student and the internship organisation.


Performance in the course will be evaluated on basis of the student's activities during the internship, as well as on the basis of a midterm hand-in and a final written report. Swedish grades G and U are supplemented by pass/not passed. In order to pass the internship course students need to take part of the daily activities at the internship organisation, as well as hand in and be approved on written reports within the prescribed time limit.

Uppsala University takes cheating and plagiarism seriously, and disciplinary action will be taken against any student suspected of being involved in any sort of cheating and/or plagiarism. The disciplinary action takes the form of warnings or limited suspensions.

NOTE: Only completed courses can count toward a degree.
